Two types of phone chargers under recall because they can heat up

About 31,000 Gemini phone adaptors and chargers were given away as promotional items at trade shows nationwide from October 2013 to April 2014.

The chargers have plastic cubes with ADCP3-1000 imprinted on the plug side of the adaptor.  A consumer reported burning their hand.  You are told to stop using the piece immediately, and throw them away.  MORE FROM THE CDC ON THIS RECALL.

Additionally, 25,000 chargers sold under the brand names of Ban.do, Jonathan Adler and Lilly Pulitzer have also been recalled.

The chargers can overheat and emit smoke and sparks.  This poses a fire and burn hazard, according to the CDC.  The prongs on the charger can also detach and stay in the electrical outlet, which poses a risk of electrical shock.  Seven models of chargers are under this recall.  MORE FROM THE CDC ON THIS RECALL.
